Syria

OK… put your tin foil hats on…

So there I sit on a Socialist Beach wondering why we have such a Unilateral interest in bombing Syria. Consequently, I’m wondering why one of the proudest Socialist’s to hold American High Office is neglecting the United Nations and the time-honored endeavor of “Coalition Building” in favor of direct military action… then suddenly peddling the responsibility off to the British who said “No”… the Congress who will probably say “No”, and as of today… the World, again… it feels like circular diplomacy. There’s another term for it which is similar and means the same thing but I’m not going to use here.

So, my memory made a rare appearance and something dawned on me. It was not long ago that the United States, under that stupid Texan cowboy George Bush invaded Iraq… with a Coalition… and Overwhelming Approval from Congress… and the American People… but I digress, looking for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Saddam said he had… and four other foreign intelligence agencies said he had… and our intelligence agencies said he had… dammit, I’m digressing again, but found nothing… except weapons of mass destruction which we were told were too old “to count”.

Some of us noticed an odd occurrence however. There suddenly appeared a division of Syrian armor sitting out in the middle of the Bekaa valley.  They were not in a posture to defend against an advance, certainly not from Israel, but seemed to be protecting something.  (Break out your maps and take a look…)

OK…

The question is “why?”.

The conspiracy theory was that Saddam’s weapons had been moved through Syria, close to the Med, for safe keeping or quick movement if needed.

There were a number of us who thought we should “go take a look” for ourselves.  That never happened… that we are aware of.

So…

Could it be possible that a strike on Syria would give the U.S. the opportunity to destroy certain “old, expired, ineffectual” weapons of mass destruction that may not officially belong to Syria?

While it would be hilarious, in a horribly tragic way, if Assad aided in the “discovery” of Saddam’s weapons by the press… the problem for him is it would allow for a whole flood on international condemnation.  It would also justify buckets of hatred to be poured upon Bashar from an International Coalition of angry Socialists… not all angry for the same reasons, but angry none the less.

Some would be angry because they would be put in a position where they couldn’t say “No.”

Our’s would be angry because they would look like fools…  It would be an extremely inconvenient truth, for the Leftists who currently hold power in the U.S., that their entire platform which was built upon the foundation of George Bush being a Stupid Texan Cowboy who shot first and asked questions later was a fabrication.

In the end,

Crazy, conspiracy theorists might suggest that this could be an opportunity to destroy a whole lot of evidence… save a Liberal narrative… and rid the world of some stuff that really shouldn’t be around.

It’s what we call a Win-Win.

OK, you can take you hat’s off now.

That would be ridiculous.

Stop thinking about it.


UN contacts Hillary Clinton…

…on how to deal with “Snipper Fire”.

This morning the UN Inspectors sent to Syria encountered fire when leaving their compound.

After the inspectors initial desire to give up was dampened by the reality they would be forced to go out anyway, they called on Hillary Clinton to suggest ways in dealing with such hostility.

Her suggestion was to walk out in the open with your daughter or nearest family member, stand straight-up, wear a brightly colored scarf around your neck and smile while appearing not to hear anything in terms of gunfire… also do not show you are experiencing any fear, in any way.  It is also helpful to shake hands with, then hug, children you have brought out into the open to greet you.

She sent a video along with her directions to illustrate exactly how to do it.

Upon review, the UN tried once again to give up.

They did, eventually, reach some victims of the latest attack utilizing Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Mrs. Clinton was the only American representative, with any authority, to contact the UN delegation as we have deferred leadership to the British… the French were busy.

The official comment from The U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power was “I’m trying to watch a movie, could you please be quiet.”  She was also heard asking an associate “What does this have to do with us?”  As of this typing we are not sure whether she meant the U.S. or her and her associate personally.


Fun with Inane Quotes…

“If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”

This was a comment attributed to “an anonymous Obama aide” by the Weekly Standard. Full Article here.

OK… first off we don’t know exactly who said it.  But for my point I don’t care, because it’s an interesting question.  However I would LOVE to know…

Secondly, we need a few definitions here so all of us understand what is being said.

I will handle this with a couple of links:

Sarin (Gas)

Weapons of Mass Destruction

“He”

“his own people”

Now let’s explore this…

“If he drops sarin  gases on his own people in showers, what’s that got to do with us?”  (Hmmm…. seems like we don’t like that sort of thing.)

“If he Obama drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us up here in Canada?”  (Do you think we might want some help?)

“If he Yugoslavians drop sarin kill their on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”  (Apparently a lot.)

“If he the Prime Minister of Britain drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”  (Would we have anything to say about it?)

“If he drops sarin  a nuke on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”  (I wonder if this policy position has more to do with bunker buster bombs than anything else… we want to use them, they are nukes, we would need to “loosen” the definition of “weapons of mass destruction” in the minds of the people.  Just a very small thought.)

Aside from the embarrassingly stupid meaning of such a sentence, no matter the context, as using such weapons always “means something to us” it is illustrative of the current administrations foreign policy.  In other words, there really isn’t one.  We are all lucky our Presidents have terms limits of two terms.  If they didn’t, who knows how much damage one could do?
